Curtain provides users with more control over their data on the internet. According to Peacock, data collection methods are becoming increasingly invasive. The preservation of information is shifting from a technological problem to a moral dilemma. As a result of this growing problem and concern, we decided to work on a solution addressing this. Curtain, serves to provide a centralized application for privacy tools. There are several tools that we implemented into our application: blocking web tracking (including data such as user behavior in and outside of a website), blocking ads, bypassing AdBlock detection messages, deleting cookies, and a dashboard for easy access to settings and usage data. Curtain makes it easy for individuals to browse the internet with a little more confidence that there is less information gathered about them.
